Hello! I’m having an issue with a web application that uses REST API v1.1’s POST direct_messages/new resource.
I’m getting error 150:“You cannot send messages to users who are not following you” very frequently even if the recipient user IS FOLLOWING the authenticating user, or when both users are following each other.
I’ve previously read this issue: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/13093
in which the official response is: “It sounds like it’s possible one of these user accounts is in some kind of corrupted state (or cache corrupted state)”
However, it’s been more than a year since that issue was reported and the problem still persists.
I’d appreciate your support on this.
